Commitment to Sustainability

Commitment to Sustainability

The California State University (CSU) and other state institutions are major consumers of energy and natural resources. Therefore, CSU has the responsibility to be a wise steward of scarce resources by reducing the use of non-renewable resources and increasing energy efficiency. CSU is also committed to promoting the continued economic and ecological viability of the State.

The Sustainability Advisory Committee, a subcommittee of the CSU Academic Senate, Academic Affairs, Capital Planning, Design, and Construction, and Advancement, develops partnerships and funding to support the educational, research, and public service missions of higher education as they relate to sustainability. Many new and emerging academic programs are responsive to students' interest in pursuing green jobs. Environmentally conscious student development, with the integration of sustainability into the curriculum, will improve California as over 95,000 CSU graduates join the state's skilled workforce each year.

The university's best institutional practices and hallmark strengths-teaching, applied research, and community service-all play a special role in sustaining the continued economic and ecological viability of the state.
